by Matthew Barber

August 23 – September 14

Directed by Judith Ivey

Made possible by the Franci Neely Foundation

Fireflies debuted at White Heron in 2017 as part of our collaboration with the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven. It’s the story of Eleanor, a respected lady in her small Texas town, and a drifter handyman, Abel, who causes quite a stir by flickering in and out of Eleanor’s life…

Like the summer fireflies viewed from her porch at night. 

Running time about 2 hours, with one fifteen-minute intermission.
